This October has turned out to be full of energy, gentleness, strength and solidarity, love and emotion.
Here at ByCalliste we had the pleasure of welcoming famous Dutch author Sophie Van der Stap, who wrote “The Girl with Nine Wigs”. She wrote this autobiographical book 10 years ago, about a young girl battling with cancer.
She shares these very personal stories with us on a very emotional subject. This young woman is incredibly sweet and gentle, clear-sighted and sincere.
How can one not be sincere when staring death in the face? When suffering and afraid, and yet somehow finding the strength to fight against this terrible disease?
Sophie also shares her vision of beauty and her thoughts on feeling attractive, when she was battling cancer.
Sophie, thank you for sharing your story with us and for our exchanges today.
